Boris Becker’s ex-wife Lilly has posted this topless snap to social media showing the former tennis ace what he is missing.
Boris and Lilly Becker announced last May that they had separated after nine years of marriage.
Since then, the 51-year-old former tennis ace and 42-year-old Lilly have fought out their divorce in several proceedings at a London family court.
Lilly, who was born in the Dutch city of Rotterdam as Sharlely Kerssenberg, has given her social media followers an insight into her thoughts of the tumultuous last year.

She posted a cheeky topless snap in her bathroom hiding her breasts under her hands while her waist and hair are covered by towels.
Lilly wrote: “Dear 2018, reflecting on the past months and thankful for the lessons and looking forward to the blessings 2019 will bring us all.”
Many netizens remarked that Lilly looked “beautiful” and “stunning” having seemingly moved on from her separation from Boris.
Netizen ‘marioooo7’ wrote: “Yes Boris, you have to miss this now.”
Her picture also had its share of critics, with netizen ‘Maik Brenner’ remarking that “for me, the financial problems of Boris Becker and the separation from Lilly Becker are directly related”.
Brenner said: “The woman is cheap, as you can see with this nude picture and she will fall into the arms of the next one who can offer her a carefree life. I hope Boris Becker gets the custody of his child, so that he does not have to grow up in this environment.”

Boris and Lilly’s mutual lawyer Christian-Oliver Moser has previously told German local media that they both decided upon a “mutual and friendly” divorce.
Moser stated: “This decision was not an easy one for Mr and Ms Becker after 13 years in a relationship and over nine years of marriage.
“The most important thing for both clients is the wellbeing of their son Amadeus.”
Becker met the Dutch model in 2005 in Miami, married her in the summer of 2009 in Switzerland and had son Amadeus in February 2010.

Boris has two other sons – Noah, 24 and Elias, 18 – from his previous marriage with 51-year-old Barbara Becker as well as an 18-year-old daughter, Anna, by Russian model Angela Ermakova.
According to local media, Boris, 50 and Lilly, 41, had been seen spending less time together prior to the divorce and there were rumours about their relationship.
This is the second divorce for the German-born former No. 1 tennis player who has a residence in Wimbledon.
He divorced his American ex-wife Barbara in 2001 in a multi-million-pound settlement.
Last year he was declared bankrupt because he owed an undisclosed amount of money to a private bank.
